We loved our two days relaxing in Goa. And we had two fabulous lunches at Sam's. On the first day we had the BEST CRAB EVER! Stunning cooking and great service. Fresh and succulent. On the second day, we had prawns and chicken tikka. Both fantastic. Thank you all for great food, service and good times.

The Shack is one of the smallest on the beach, which allows it to give a more personal service than the other shacks as it is not so busy. Attention has been given to presentation, making it feel more like a restaurant than a Shack. We felt the prices were very slightly higher than other shacks on the beach but... More

SAMS GOAN SHACK has moved back to MAJORDA beach after three years but we returned back for yet another year and found the food and drink was up to the usual standard again. Some of the lads in the shack were different from last year but they ensured we had good service as well as enjoying our food and drink.... More

The name says everything. Its a lot cheaper than eating in your hotel, but you will come and dine here for the lovely views of the sea. If its windy then its not a good idea sitting outside. Overall a lovely view and i suppose dining on the beach is a must whilst in goa.

We've been to India six times, 5 of those involved a stay in Goa. Never before have we experienced poor offhanded service at a beach shack. Well done Sam's Goan Beach Shack for managing to make us feel unwelcome. For some context, we're a couple of guys. Yup, you've guessed it, we're a gay couple. No, we don't fawn all... More
